Fantasy Impact:

Fournette, the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, signed his rookie deal with the Jaguars Wednesday. Although reports suggest the impending freshman rusher must earn the starting job, it's more like his job to lose. Barring a terrible showing in training camp and the preseason, Fournette is poised to enter the 2017 season as the No. 1 running back on Jacksonville's depth chart with T.J. Yeldon assuming the role of his handcuff. Fournette will flirt with the RB1 tier to open the upcoming fantasy football campaign.
